Garson’s Outing

We went to Garson’s garden centre

On a mini bus

Bob was our driver

He didn’t make a fuss

He got us on and off, with ease

His every intention was to please

A nicer man you could not meet

Soon had everyone in their seats

Off we set – along country lanes

Fortunately, it hadn’t rained

All the fields were beautifully green

A very picturesque scene

We were met by daughters and sons

Who had come to push wheelchairs for

Their Mums and Dads

We all met up in the coffee shop

For coffee, cakes and a catch up

We all sat out in the warm sunshine

Having a truly lovely time

Then it was back on the bus

Again, no fuss

A happy bunch

Home for lunch

Recently we had the amazing Sally’s Stompers Line Dancing group in to entertain us all at Merry Hall in their Hawaiian Hula outfits. The ladies were fantastic and we all had a great time. Thanks Sally’s Stompers! 🙂

Today we celebrated the 93rd birthday of one of our lovely residents, Iris. She enjoyed cake with the staff and other residents as well as lunch with her daughter, Daphne. Happy Birthday Iris!

For the last few months we have been working hard on revamping our website. You are now looking at the finished product!

We have filled the site with plenty of information about each home, a great News & Events page which we will use to update friends and relatives on the weekly goings-on at each home and lots of lovely new photos of our residents, staff and homes.

In addition, we are able to accept job applications via the site so please have a browse if you are interested in working for us and don’t hesitate to fill out the form.

With summer just around the corner and the sunshine beginning to make regular appearances, there are lots of fun activities going on at many of the Buckland Care homes.

Woodland Court residents have been delighted with their weekly ice cream van which comes around on a Friday to give out ice creams and lollies for everyone to enjoy in the sun.

Over at Kingland House, residents have taken every sunny opportunity to take a stroll around the lake in neighbouring Poole Park, stopping for a coffee and to admire the lake wildlife.

Merry Hall has just extended its dining room to include a lovely bright and airy conservatory – finishing just in time for summer!

At Willow Bank, our residents have their Spring Fête to look forward to on the 21st May – please come along and join in the fun!
